8th National Rare Disease Awareness Week Campaign 22 February 2017 - 28 February 2017 , Philippines
Hosted by Philippine Society for Orphan Disorder, Inc. (PSOD)

Presidential Proclamation 1989 declared the last week of February as the “National Rare Disease Week” in the Philippines on February 8, 2010. Since then, PSOD has taken the initiative to be the central coordinating organization for the rare disease awareness week initiatives in the country—bringing together different healthcare institutions, local government units, government agencies, civic and volunteer organizations, media, and other private and public institutions to be united in creating awareness and support for Filipinos with rare diseases

This year, we will be celebrating the 8th National Rare Disease Week on 22-28 February 2017—joining hands with the rest of the world in the Rare Disease Day 2017 (Feb 28) campaign with the theme “With Research Possibilities are Limitless”.

Through our collective voice, we can advocate for:

Research on a specific disease or across diseases
Funding for research on rare disease

Private-public collaboration on research for rare disease
Patient participation in research

Organizations are invited to participate in the nationwide campaign through any of the following:
